>Today I awoke at O’dark-30 and headed to a new spot in search of birds…birds being Colorado scaled quail. Stars dangled above in a cloudless sky as the girls (slumbering comfortably in the car next to me) and I sped southeast from home. Today was a day afield in the uplands that dreams are made of…dreams to get me through the crazies and on into the bird-dog-days of September.
We witnessed the whirr of wings four times today…organized chaos. The dogs pointed all four coveys and followed up with many of the singles…enough excitement to keep me pounding boot leather all day.
As I write this post tonight, the girls are sleeping on the floor next to me…I’m quite certain that they are dreaming of intoxicating Colorado scaled quail!
Until next time…see ya on the prairies!
